-Title: Shake Slice and Shake Concordant Links
-Speaker: Anthony Bosman (Rice University)
-Abstract: In the 1970s Akbulut introduced that idea of a shake slice knot and shake slice concordance. While this offered a natural generalization of sliceness and concordance of knots, little research has been done on this notion. Earlier this year, a paper of Cochran and Ray offered a complete characterization of shake slice and shake concordance in terms of concordance and satellite operators, along with a number of other results. We extend the notion of shake slice and shake concordance to links and offer a characterization in terms of link concordance and the multiinfection of a link by a string link. We also consider possible directions for further work.
